Retirement and here is information that has been provided by them. What is equity release?
Put simply, equity release allows you to unlock cash from your home in the form of a tax-free lump
sum, or by drawing smaller amounts as and when you need them. During retirement, some people
may choose to downsize in order to raise funds. However, if you don’t want to move from your
family home, equity release could be the ideal solution for you. According to the Equity Release
Council (ERC), £1.61 billion was released in 2015 and more than 22,500 plans were agreed, which
makes for a record breaking year!
